Now in its fourth season, the well-done docu-series continues to shed light on deep struggles within the industry.
I grew up during the Attitude Era... you don't recognize the good days when you're in them. I've fallen way off of wrestling since then but you can't do better than Rock on the mix, Kurt Angle's character was hilarious and also (somehow) very dangerous, Mic Foley, Dudley Bros, Jericho (the best entrance imo), and c'mon...the Rattlesnake himself. A lot of great memories. Triple H too.
I was a wrestler in high school. A mediocre one for a top 20 team in the state of New Jersey. My record was 6-7-1. My coach said that it was okay to lose but please don't get pinned. At first, I had nothing but disdain for the pro wrestlers during the revival of the late 1970s. To call it a "sport" would enrage me. Gradually, despite the ridiculous theatrics, I came to see as incredible displays by stuntman.
As I've read tributes to Sinead O'Connor, I've realized how my feelings about her differ from most. I really don't go crazy about musicians " politics and theories of religion" ( Ray Davies) . I accept Marty Robbins, Merle Haggard , the Louvin Brothers (KKK members) for being righties and if Tom Morello and Chumbawumba are Communists, I really don't care. I find O'Connor really lacking when she tries to be "revolutionary" like James Brown or Bob Marley but wonderful when being "traditional. So in memory of her I'll listen to "The Foggy Dew" which of course, is truly revolutionary.
